Lebanese Jalal Al Abani Is Cycling From Germany To Lebanon

Jalal is a Lebanese student who’s attempting to cycle about 3000km through eight countries in a period of two months.

I guess this pretty much sums up this social experiment conducted by Volvo. It’s a very disappointing but expected outcome.
